The Anglican Covenant

11 04 2008

What follows is an statement made by the authority of the Corkscrew of Anglican Infallibility

This is the only covenant we need:

We, the constituent members of the Anglican Communion, bound together by the Grace of Jesus Christ working together in common mission, do solemnly and gratefully covenant to:

Reaffirm our bonds of affection, and it is by the Grace and Love of God that we have been brought out of the bondage of colonialism into a family of worshipping communities.

Give thanks that at the banquet of heaven and the Wedding Feast of the Lamb, the Lord will see fit to put us in charge of the cocktail hour.

Humble ourselves and be servants of the community, especially those called to Holy Orders of Deacon, Priest, or Bishop, for Jesus Christ humbled himself and took the form of a slave

Renounce any violence done in the name of God as anathema.

Recognize the faithfulness of each other’s walk with Christ in times of dispute

and above all, to love one another as God has loved us…unconditionally.

David, that is excellent, especially with us being in charge of the cocktail hour. Can we have Sazeracs?

Seriously, the New Covenant given us by Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Two Great Commandments, love the Lord with all your heart, soul, and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself seem sufficient to me. Can any sinful humans improve on this? If we followed these commands faithfully, what else would we need to guide us?
